a b U Graphics card

I have ATI mobility HD 3200 256mb graphic card on my notebook, which is not great, but by system requirements, it supports games 2-3 years ago. But when I play any of them, like COD2 which is not playable on lowest settings, and GTA SA which works only on low setttings.

What's the problem, is something wrong or graphic card is weak?

AMD Turion 2.3Ghz
RAM 2gb
Win7 64bit

Its because of your whole rig,a combination of 2.3GHz turion/2GB RAM and a HD 3200 won't give you a good performance in gaming,try lowering the resolutions and using the lowest quality and i think you can play MW2

I think he means Call of Duty 2 from '06. And I played it on a Pentium 4 rig with a 7900gs 256mb. a gig of 667 ram and win xp... right now, I think your CPU is the bottleneck, and also, running win7 isn't helping much either... Is that turion dual core? (I don't know much about amd's laptop lineup)

This igp i.e hd 3200 is weak not that much so that it can't handle cod2 etc....but still it can play most of games including some of the newer one on low resolution ....there is something wrong with your drivers it seems roll back to more stable drivers or go for the latest one

Thanks for clarifying, but yet a HD 3200 can't handle COD2 fine,the settings have to be lowered in order to get a good performance.

Hd 4200 can easily handle the games that are 2 - 3 old at an high to medium setting...and i don't think cod 2 is that much intense so that hd 3200 have to play it on lower settings....at lower setting it can even handle latest games too....

Not on a high resolution though,even if it can play COD2 on high-med,it will be on a low resolution.

sorry to say but I play COD4MW on my laptop which is a dual core 1.2Ghz, 4Gb ram, HD3200 with 256Mb and I get 25-45Fps on medium graphic setting, if I put to triple buffering instead of AA I can squeeze out 5 more frames and it's totally playable. I haven't tried COD2 on the laptop but COD runs about 75FPS on med-high settings, using Catalyst 10.3 drivers, Windows 7 Ultimate 32Bit.

That's the reason then,it can handle it fine on low resolutions. i was talking about higher resolutions like 1600x900+

no at higher resolution the game will be unplayable as it will force the video to much, pretty much the resolution I am running would be max, if you want to run higher res the card is not strong enough for more modern games, maybe older games (before 2004) may run at that res but not without some stuttering
